This is the second talk in a series of online events on “Digital methods and tools in teaching and learning,” organized by the Digital Liberal Arts Programs committee.
Brooke Blackmon Bryan will discuss projects from the Oral History in the Liberal Arts program. These are collaborative digital projects that have an anchor in the local community of the host institution, a curricular tie, and collaboration involving faculty, technologists, librarians, and community partners. She will showcase how these projects (and the digital exhibits they built) represent different modes of collaboration, and outline the crucial best practices that need to guide this kind of work. From research ethics, considerations of IRB and informed consent, interview methods for qualitative inquiry, and which digital tools hold the most pedagogical promise for an outcomes-oriented collaboration.
The event will run for 90 minutes: the presentation will take up the first hour, with the remaining time devoted to Q&A.
